Kim Williams is passionate about composing music. She has enjoyed writing over 15 solos, duets, and other works published by Alfred Publishing Company. Her worship suite for piano, "Jesus Christ, Friend and Savior", has become a favorite among churches of all denominations. She is currently writing sacred music for congregational worship, and her greatest desire is to unify churches by writing music that embraces the past yet celebrates the worship styles of all generations.
Kim’s goal in writing sacred music for congregational worship is to acknowledge the wide variety of ways music is incorporated into worship and to provide churches with hymns and songs that embrace elements of both traditional and contemporary styles. By composing original works of various styles, Kim creates texts and tunes that can be used in a variety of worship settings.
Kim was blessed to grow up in a family that gave her amazing opportunities for both spiritual and musical growth. She vividly remembers her upbringing in church and a combined passion for ministry and music. Kim pursued her calling into youth ministry by attending Oklahoma City University and graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Religion. Shortly thereafter, she pursued her passion of music by obtaining a Bachelor of Music degree in Piano Pedagogy.
Kim has worked in youth ministry, played in praise and worship bands, taught private and group piano lessons, and coordinated the group piano program at the University of Central Oklahoma. She has served as the President of the Central Oklahoma Music Teachers Association, and is the founder of the association’s Kamp Keyboard, which is held each summer. She currently is an active member of the Oklahoma Music Teachers Association, the Music Teachers National Association, and the Hymn Society of America. Above all, she loves the Lord and strives to be a spiritual mentor to each piano student that walks through her door.
Kim continues to be amazed at how her spiritual and musical gifts have been woven together and used for God’s glory. In addition to composing, Kim currently enjoys spending time with her family, going to the lake during the summer months, teaching piano, and sponsoring children through World Vision.
